Advance Tuition Deposit


The Advanced Tuition Deposit (ATD) is a $200 deposit payment signifying a student’s commitment to Oregon State University. The ATD is a deposit, not a fee, which allows Oregon State to plan for our upcoming class. This deposit will be credited toward the student’s first term of enrollment.

In order to move forward with the matriculation process, which includes registering for START orientation and choosing housing options, the ATD payment is required. When you arrive on campus prior to the start of classes, your $200 ATD is applied to your tuition or any account balance you may have. The enrollment deposit allows the University to more effectively plan for class offerings and student resources in preparation for the next term.

Ecampus students participate in online orientation and do not attend START, but still must pay the ATD before they can register for classes.

The following students are required to pay:

  • Domestic, undergraduate students (first-year and transfer)
  • Ecampus students
  • Degree Partnership Program students (with some exceptions)

The following students not required to pay the ATD:

  • International students
  • Post-Baccalaureate students
  • Graduate students
  • Service members and Veterans
  • Undocumented/DACAmented students

Service members and Veterans

Oregon State recognizes the members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, and ROTC scholarship recipients, by exempting them from paying the ATD. In order to be eligible for the ATD exemption, current military members serving on active duty need to submit a copy their most recent military orders, Enlisted Records Brief (ERB), Officer Records Brief (ORB), or scholarship paperwork. Veterans need to submit a copy of their DD-214. Please email them to, fax them to 541-737-2482, or mail them to:
